Famous quotes containing the word wearing:

    Euphemisms are not, as many young people think, useless verbiage for that which can and should be said bluntly; they are like secret agents on a delicate mission, they must airily pass by a stinking mess with barely so much as a nod of the head, make their point of constructive criticism and continue on in calm forbearance. Euphemisms are unpleasant truths wearing diplomatic cologne.
    Quentin Crisp (b. 1908)

    Why do you ever mend your clothes, unless that, wearing them, you may mend your ways. Let us sing.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    ... we did not call ourselves ladies. We did not forget that we were working-girls, wearing coarse aprons suitable to our work, and that there was some danger of our becoming drudges.
    Lucy Larcom (1824–1893)
